2010 Bohème English Hill Vineyard Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley, CA, $49 (S) – Rating 93

A blend of four clones, Dijon 115 & 667, Vosne, Romanee and Calera – each farmed, harvested and fermented separately, then aged two years in neutral French Oak barrels. The nose is plush with aromas of dark fruit, ripe raspberry and black tea. An elegant Pinot Noir ,with both mouth watering acidity and a round mouth-feel. The palate is enticed with flavors of cherry, raspberry, red fruit and lots of spice. Notes of black tea in the finish adds complexity. But This Wine

2010 Bohème Taylor Ridge Vineyard Chardonnay, Sonoma Coast, CA, $39 (S) – Rating 94

Rarely does a Chardonnay grab my attention but this intriguing contradiction of  the lighter style combined with rich flavors certainly did. Aromas of lemon crème and roasted pineapple set the stage for an elegant marriage of flavors including baked apples, pie spice, Meyer lemon vanilla and cinnamon with hints of green apple in the long finish. A light creamy mouth-feel with balanced acidity. Buy This Wine
